Tide Rolls Defeats MASCO, 32-0 in Thanksgiving Day game
By Independent Staff
The Everett High School football team wrapped up its 2018 season with a 32-0 victory over Masconomet Regional on Thanksgiving morning at Walt Roberts Field in Boxboro.
Seniors Mike Sainristil and Isaac Seide each scored two touchdowns in a game that was played in frigid temperatures.
Everett relied on its rushing attack against Masconomet (4-7) and the offensive line provided strong blocking for the backfield and sophomore quarterback Duke Doherty.
Sainristil opened the scoring with a nine-yard run, followed by placekicker Joseph Adriano’s first of two PATs. Seide (10 carries for 87 yards) followed with a 23-yard run as Everett built a 14-0 lead after one quarter.
Sainristil (13 carries for 55 yards) struck again on a four-yard run to increase the lead to 20-0 at the half.
After a scoreless third quarter, Seide impressed the fans with a spectacular 36-yard touchdown run. Doherty completed the scoring with a six-yard run for a touchdown.
Doherty’s emergence as a poised, dual-threat quarterback was one of the highlights of the season. The first-year signal caller finished among the state leaders in touchdown passes.
Everett finishes with a 10-1 record under first year coach Theluxon Pierre.
Supt. of Schools Frederick Foresteire commended Pierre and the team for a successful season.
“It was a great year – who else has a 10-1 record,” said Foresteire. “It was great for the new coach and his staff. Coach Pierre has done an outstanding job in his first year. He’s a dedicated young man and we’re glad to have him as our coach. I hope he continues growing the program.” Sainristil, who has committed to Michigan, and other Everett players, will surely rack up post-season accolades such as Globe and Herald All-Scholastic honors. Sainristil leaves the EHS football program as one of the greatest players in school history.
